Solar phones: It was only a few months ago that the first prototype solar-powered cell phones were being shown off by LG and Samsung. Well, now the first production models are ready to launch but they're from Japan's Sharp. The phones recharge the battery through a solar panel built into the top of their clamshell-style body. Thirty minutes in the sun will provide enough power for 2 minutes of chat or 140 minutes of standby power while 90 minutes pushes this up to 9 minutes of talktime and 560 minutes on standby. If you leave the phone in a brightly lit place you might never need to plug into the wall again!
